Sharon Jones: Funk's Best Kept Secret [04 Aug 2005|04:22pm]

Friday, August 26; 8:30 PM; 18+
Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings (featuring members of Antibalas Afrobeat Orchestra) @ Echo (1822 Sunset Blvd., Los Angeles, 90026)

Buy tickets.

““You’ve got to feel it,” is the first thing that comes from the mouth of seasoned soul singer Sharon Jones when asked what makes great music. “You’ve got to feeel it! In your bones, your heart, in everything and everywhere!” Ms. Jones’s funk pedigree can be traced to her hometown of Augusta, Georgia, the same town that birthed the Godfather of Soul himself: James Brown. Moreover, it didn’t take long for the young Sharon to be encouraged to take the spirit from the gospel and apply it to a more secular setting. This setting was realized when as a teenager she moved with her family to Brooklyn, NY and soon found herself saturated with the pulse of funk and disco. Little time passed before she became a staple within the studios, doing often uncredited back-up work for gospel, soul, disco and blues artists. However, when the commercial music landscape began to radically change during the ‘80s, demand for singers such as Sharon waned, and she soon found herself working at Rykers Island Jail as a corrections officer. Fast forward to 1996. Sharon crosses paths with NYC’s great indie-soul & funk label Desco Records. Sharon’s first full-length album, 2002’s successful Dap Dippin’ with Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kingson Brooklyn-based Daptone Records, served to solidify her reputation as Soul Sister # 1. – Bio, Daptone Records

Hear clips from her latest album, Naturally with the Dap Kings featuring a special appearance with Lee Fields.

Chelsea Bell - Application [20 Jul 2004|01:33am]

Nickname: Chelsea... no nicknames except for poon pie.... yeah, but we call eachother that. in my group of friends, the word poon pie is a term of endearment.
LJ name: aquanaut5150
Your story: well, it allllllll started in gradeschool when i was made fun of because i was a short ugly kid that had "eyes in her mouth" (which were really canine teeth that were stuck in my gums). culdn't play sports because i have athsma and a low immune system, so i was always the outcast. made me a very cynnical (sp?) person. Then i grew into my skin at a gigantic 5'2", blonde, blue eyed. and in case you're talking about the whole LJ community experiance, 3 of em said i looked like a good looking boy. then they realised, hmm, his name is chelsea...NO.
Why you feel rejected: because i don't unnaturally colored hair, pouty lips, a pale face, or wear lots of cover-up and extreme make-up. also because i'm not so into myself i HAVE TO join a rating community . i mean, it did make me feel ugly for a bit, but then i realized........ all these people are staring at me for a reason. my confidence was built up and i continued along with my life.
Where did you hear this of this community? from the anti_bush community.

i forget the community names.... curlup_and_die is one....

You all really must check out the L.A. band headParade. If you like them, then join the street team. There is a FREE street team show next Saturday for all of you L.A. area kids. Even if you are not from SOCal, it is most definitely worth your while to check this band out, and join the street team!

Kaumyar, the drummer of headParade, is also the new drummer of Big City Rock, the drummer of Matt Beckley, and the drummer of Hypercycle

bassist [07 Oct 2003|12:13am]

[ mood | determined ]

Farramone needs a bassist who is into screamo and lives in the valley, preferrebly someone who drives. if not, we could make accomodations. We practice in my garage which has alot of room, a stage, and is in the process of being soundproofed. We're playing a show on holloween. Our sound is unique and profound, and if you like screamo you'll love this. Please leave a comment if ur interested or talk to me on aim (antianarchypunk1) or gabe (dead revery).
